Join us for an evening of exhibits stretching from Hatcher Graduate Library’s Audubon Room and Gallery, through the Clark Library and into the Shapiro Undergraduate Library. The open house highlights artwork by U-M students as well as an exhibit focusing on filmmaker Robert Altman curated by U-M students.
Christopher Achen, Roger Williams Straus Professor of Social Sciences, Princeton University, gives the 2013 Miller Converse Lecture.
In her book Fatal Invention: How Science, Politics, and Big Business Re-create Race in the Twenty-First Century Dr. Dorothy Roberts argues that America is once again at the brink of a virulent outbreak of classifying population by race.
Jerome Rothenberg reads from A Cruel Nirvana, which is a collection of his previously published poetry. Join us for a little poetry...and pizza!
This exhibit draws on the riches of the University of Michigan’s Robert Altman archive, including examples of his novel approach to overlapping dialogue, his exploration of movie genres, his use of ensemble casts, and how audiences and critics viewed his work.
